Lawton Online: Furey on why feelings beat facts and more post-election post-mortem tidbits

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

In this post-election edition of Lawton Online, I talk about the difference between conservatism and Conservatism, and why people on the right should be focusing on the culture war between elections rather than lamenting Justin Trudeau's victory.

Anthony Furey also joins Andrew to talk about why feelings beat facts in this week's federal election.

The 15 question rule is the most unbiased and censor free method. Let the journalists decide which 15 questions are most important … if they want o blow them all on Duffy then they can not complain about not be able ask other questions.

I look forward 4 years from now after the man child totally screws up when leadnow plays their same game by trying to get the Liberals out of power with strategic voting between the NDP and Conservatives. Maybe then they will be more scrutinized than they are now.

A POST MORTUM.. My Comments :
Trump controlled the media. When an idiot reporter asked him stupid questions, Trump said… next ! not taking that question. You are out. Maybe Harper should have done the same with the liberal media.
yeashk..so we need to act like touchy fee-ly immature kids in order to win the vote of the unthinking masses now? Yeashk. this is a negative commentary on the shallow and immature values and thinking of our society. Feelings and appearance over substance !!! Immature kids need spankings and perhaps in voting for this other immature kid, the grown up kids in our society will feel the results of their vote in due time.. and have a very rude awakening.

My fear though if we follow this reporter’s advice is that we will end up with a Red Tory. I would not consider this winning even if that kind of Conservative were elected.
Yes, a huge amount of our Canadian electorate IS STUPID… no apologies needed. People don’t know what they have till they lose it. It seems Karma has to kick in and we have to feel it, before we will believe it. SMH

Harper is so “mean” and such a “hater” and he made some immigrants cry when he suggested they need to show their faces at their ceremonies. Why, even suggesting that we need to make decisions on facts is so “mean”. At some point we started to validate feelings as more important than reason with our children. Someone put it this way. Imagine going to Starbucks to get coffee and the barrista telling you that she is sad today, and so it may take 30 minutes for her to get it together enough for your coffee. We don’t go to a job interview and discuss our emotions, but how in fact we will be good for the job. Except the job as Canada’s Prime Minister.

I agree, the left wing has been brainwashing our children for decades. In order to change this, we need to boot out the bloated fat cat unions, and weed out those do-gooder nannies from our government. Force the teachers to apply individually for positions, and weed out those who continue to think, that they have the right to instill communist ideals in our young minds.

Please… the education system in this country primed the populace over the last few decades for this. Education has become less and less about critical thought and all about feelings. So why would anyone be surprised then feelings trump facts on the campaign trail?

feelings, nothing more than feelings….

Here’s a feeling Canada. Bend over and imagine a mack truck going where it shouldn’t – that’s pig troodo and his financial rape machine jacking taxes and laughing at you for voting for this dumb fuck.
